Shay Moree-Dew, LMT, LE
Senior VP of Operations
Shay has called the Low Country her home for over 35 years. When she is not at the Advanced Aesthetics Academy, you will most likely find her on the May River. With a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and a working background in business management, she decided to further her love of learning by seeking licensure in both Massage Therapy (15+ years) and Esthetics (7+years). And with that, found her true passion; managing all the various aspects of Spa industry.
She has opened and/or owned multiple spas in the area, maintained a thriving medical massage practice and held positions of leadership in several high- end luxury resort spas. We feel very honored and blessed she has joined our team.
DeAnn graduated from Tusco Beauty School in Dover, Ohio. She owned her own salon and sold it prior to her family's move to the low country in 2001. Skincare has been her primary focus as she worked in spas on the island. To share that knowledge with others, she worked for and received her instructor's license. As a mother of six, she appreciates the flexibility and opportunities offered with an esthetician's license to schedule appointments around a busy family's schedule. She brings over twenty years of experience and passion for the industry to share with students. "I feel fortunate to have a profession where I may help prepare future estheticians to be confident in what they do" Her desire for knowledge in this ever-changing skincare industry spurs her to stay informed and share it with the students. She brings an active understanding and strives to teach future estheticians how to critically think about each and every treatment they'll provide for their clients for optimal results.

Justin Mitts, LMT
Justin attended Miller-Motte Technical College located in Clarksville, TN in 2015, where he graduated from with a diploma in Massage Therapy. In 2016, Justin relocated to the Savannah, GA area. He has worked in several spa settings, as well as in a chiropractic clinic providing different modalities to clients over the last few years. In 2019, he graduated from Empire Beauty School and gained the title Master Cosmetologist, becoming dual licensed in the state of Georgia. Justin knew before he graduated massage school that he wanted to eventually teach massage to other, so he decided to share his passion for the field with others by becoming an instructor. Even though he is new to teaching, Justin has a lot to offer when it comes to experience and knowledge of the trade. When he isn’t teaching, he can be found either working in his studio providing massage and hair services to his clients, or enjoying downtime with his family and friends.
Lee Anne is originally from Westchester, NY and relocated to South Carolina with her husband who was stationed at MCAS Beaufort while serving in the Marine Corps. They fell in love with the beauty of Bluffton and have called the Lowcountry home ever since. As a Marine Corps spouse, Lee Anne wanted to pursue a career that she could bring with her, wherever the military brought her family.
With a passion for makeup, Lee Anne was led into the world of aesthetics. "I absolutely love result driven facial treatments. There is nothing more gratifying than helping people feel good about themselves." Lee Anne offers many different facets as part of our integral team here at A3.
We have a state of the art facility, numerous facial machines, spa like/clinical environment, experienced educators and we are centrally located between Savannah, Pooler, Effingham, Beaufort, Bluffton and Hilton Head Island. Students interested in dual licensing will be assisted in filing for endorsement in reciprocity participating states.
A3 will assist each student in designing their personal resume for job placement. Once you graduate from Advanced Aesthetics Academy you will walk out fully confident with the knowledge and skill set you have worked towards.
We provide a professional environment to study aesthetics and ultimately graduate highly educated estheticians into the local workforce. This is a one of a kind facility, that also caters to local continuing education as well as offering advanced classes. We will partner with local spa and medical facilities to offer job placement.

It is environmentally safe and non-toxic.
We are asking clients to call the school upon arrival, the student practitioner will come to your vehicle and check your temperature with a touch free device. The student will then escort the client directly to the treatment room. Only one guest at a time is escorted and allowed in the lobby area.
Students will be required to wear masks, utilize the sanitation stations, and monitor their temperatures. Students will be seated at a social distance in the classroom. Classrooms and machinery are cleaned throughout the day. As well as deep cleaned at the end of the day.
